"The drawings aren't very good, Mama."
—Crappy Boy, age 5

Of course you love being a parent. But sometimes, it just sucks. I know. I'm Amber Dusick and I started my blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures because I needed a place to vent about the funny (and frustrating) day-to-day things that happened to me as a parent. Turns out, poop is hilarious! At least when you're not the one wiping it up.

This book won't make your frustrating moments any less crappy. But these stories about my Crappy Baby, Crappy Boy and my husband, Crappy Papa, will hopefully make you laugh. Because you're not alone. And sometimes the crappiest moments make the best memories. Parenting is wonderful! And also, well, you know.


  • Hilarious!

    By Loreo_d
    Very funny and accurate. Careful when reading while kids are napping, you may wake them up with your laughter.
  • Funny but short and seen on blog

    By PiggySpaghetti
    This was funny. So funny. Because its all true. I literally had to stifle my laughter laying in bed as to not wake my husband and 3 year old. I have seen some material on the blog before, and the book was short, but funny nonetheless. Totally recommend. It's worth the laughs.
  • Laugh your parenting blues away with this gem!

    As a faithful fan of the "Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures" site, I knew I'd enjoy this book. So I got myself an iTunes copy and sent a paper one to my daughter, who's got an almost two-year-old. She thinks it's hilarious and you will, too!

  • Very funny, too short

    By ValleyHouse
    Super funny book. My only complaint is it's way too short. Only took maybe 30-45 minutes to read.

  • Great for New Parents

    By ~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    This book helps you laugh at how insane parenting really is. My only complaint is that it's too short!
  • Lots of old stuff

    By Mara Jade 38
    I was disappointed at the amount of old material in the book that I had already read on the blog for free despite being assured to the contrary. The book is hilarious just like the blog but I'm not sure the small amount of new material justified $9.99. That being said the blog is so awesome I just look at buying the book as supporting the blog, but if you are looking for a book full of new stories this ain't it.
